    Anyone think this Fp3 is gonna be as filthy as last years paper?
    FP1 was slightly harder than standard, FP2 was slightly easier than standard. Doesn't seem like much is going on in the FP scene this year. And Edexcel don't usually do solid papers two years in a row so they'll probably have toned it down a bit

    Personally I do well in hard papers and crap in easy ones (example, m3 and fp2 well not crap just crap by my standards).

    Well, that one case seems like Osborn's rule applies. In a past paper I did today, you had to differentiate cothx (I think). This isn't given in the formula booklet and you were meant to use the differential of cotx, which is give,
    Unless I'm forgetting something Osborn's rule is that it there is a product or implied product of two sine terms, the corresponding hyperbolic identity would have -sinh's. That normal trig integral doesn't have a product of sines.

    If I get stuck on a "show that" question on reduction formulae/loci I'm just going to write down a bunch of working and then say "therefore *show that answer* (QED)" and hope for the best

    Good luck to everyone!

    The reason is because of the tan/tanh when differentiating it. It has i^2 so making it -

    Good point, I thought it applied to sin^1 as well.

    I prefer hard papers for sure. In S3 this year I dropped many silly marks due to poor focus or whatever, who knows, but not the "hard" marks; the high grade boundaries give leeway. I certainly don't want some ultra standard 70 A* paper tomorrow

    Yep agreed. Wouldn't mind a paper like last years. Easy matrices and ok vectors with hard ch 2 n 4 stuff is good for me.

    I think I'd prefer it if matrices came up as the harder question, with a fairly difficult reduction too. I want to get vectors out of the way early on, but I doubt that'll be the case.

    For 7a), they tell you it's in the form A*sqrt(5), divide your calc answer by square root 5 to get the answer
    WOW thank you!!! i srsly couldn't figure out how to get it, thanks a lot!

    Do I get a choice of doing s2 or fp3 first and if I do which one should I choose.

    i hope vectors is hard, and the reduction is easy if i don't get the reduction in one go, im gonna skip it so i don't panic
